DescriptionWe designed, constructed, and field-tested an inexpensive and reliable monitoring station that can be used with lightweight, compact data loggers. We feel this design, improved three times over 6 yr, could benefit anyone in nursery or field settings interested in acquiring environmental data. We provide step-by-step instructions on the construction of the monitoring station, with the cost of materials at less than $20 per station (not including the data loggers).
